“Cosy traditional hotel”
Reviewed 27 March 2013

We arrived here in the snow and were shown to a cosy double room. The bathroom looked brand new and was nicely equipped. Bed was very comfortable with nice white crisp bedding. A bottle of prosecco and box of chocolates were waiting for us, nice touch.
We ate here to save driving anywhere else. Food was fine, not fancy, but nicely cooked with cheery waiter service.
The surrounding scenery is stunning and we enjoyed a short cruise on the loch, it felt baltic but the hills looked beautiful covered in snow.
Breakfast was a huge cooked plateful, plenty to set you up for the day. Would have liked some fresh fruit and yogurt too but that's my preference.
Nice for a wee treat of a night away though if you get the chance!.

What a lovely place to stay, great views, immaculate bedrooms, the food was great and evening staff, very friendly and helpful. It was a big family night , there was ten of us, including two small grandchildren and nothing was a problem, we would definitely go back and would not hesitate to recommend it.

Room Tip: Choose a room with views of the Loch as they are stunning.

We went here on a "deal" and were not in any way disappointed.
Having driven through a blizzard we arrived early afternoon; our room wasn't quite ready but we were warmly greeted by Scott and retired to the cosy public bar for a wee refreshment or two while watching some rugby.
The room itself was very spacious with a sofa, the complmentary Prosecco slipped down a treat and the bath even had a jacuzzi!
We ate in the lounge bar and both of us thoroughly enjoyed our fish dishes; the fish tasting very fresh and the accompaniments were excellent too.
We had a very comfortable night's sleep followed by a superb breakfast. The morning was much nicer and we had a lovely drive back down the side of Loch Lomond to Glasgow.
We will return!!

We stayed at Ardlui Hotel between 20th -23 Jan, we had a wonderful time there.

The first impression of the hotel was very nice, clean and well decorated. Open the door of superior room No.22, lovely smell of potpourri made you feel spring comes early. The room is, in fact, very cosy. Sitting area and dressing table on one side of the room that overlook the hills, the bedroom window overlook the loch, the view was so lovely, even in the winter.

The bathroom was fully equipped with clean towels and complimentary toiletries. The jet shower was powerful, only the size of the bathroom is not very spacious.

The bed was comfy, and the whole hotel seems falling asleep after 11pm, it was so quiet which you could hear if a needle drops on the floor. So quiet made me thinking we were the only guesses in the hotel but were told the hotel was 70% full!

You would love their full Scottish breakfast! Bacon, sausages, eggs, black budding, fruit scone, potato cake (?)... After the first breakfast, I wasn’t hungry until 3pm! (You really don’t want to waste the good food), so the next day I had to ask them to make a smaller potion for me.

The breakfast lady was nice and helpful, she gave us some advices on where to go for a walk. We went for a walk at nearby Inveruglas as she recommended. It was not a hard walk, but half way up the hill it started snowing. It soon became difficult to walk as the snow getting heavier. But the view was so beautiful. The next morning, we told her that we wanted to go up hills on Trossachs, but she said the visibility would not be bad as the snow was quite heavy on the hills. So we took her advice, drove alone A82 to Ford Williams.

We had dinner in the restaurant, the chef’ specials were very good.

Only problem with the hotel is it doesn’t have internet or WiFi.

We had a five stars stay and BF already think of going back!

I have been coming to this retreat for years, initially in a caravan to then the hotel to now the lodges!! The experience of Ardlui just keeps getting better and better and harder to leave every time!! I brought the family up for their first taste and there wasn't a bad word said, in fact only positives!! Will be up again very soon and thank you to all your exemplary staff for making the mother in laws birthday! No doubt they will be regular visitors from now on! Special praise to Becs who made the visit even more special with her excellent customer service. You have a great team!
